Cutting out well-defined tasks taking a non-trivial amount of time is
not, in itself, going to do much harm.

Probably something like GSoC for "grace timing" would be overkill.
OTOH, if a student starts from a blank slate and mentoring is not doing
half the job already on its own, there might be less time left after a
_good_ solution has been implemented than one might think.

If the student does not quit the project right away afterwards, the
payoff might not be all too bad.
